Background was done with acrylics mixed with some light sand for texture and then applied with a combination of a brayer, a spatula, gelli plate and a ruler dipped in paint. I was inspired by this challenge to make something 'native', i.e. folkloric for the background. This mimics the so called flame weaving of the Finnish folk costume. (one example of a skirt)
Even the back had a message.
